Drama and Performance BA (Hons)
Take the stage and go behind the scenes to discover the process of making theatre on our BA (Hons) Drama and Performance degree course.
You'll study the theory and history of theatre and drama, and explore drama in many forms: performance through plays, production through devising new shows, techniques in voice, movement, criticism and analysis. After your first year, you can tailor the course to your preferences, from choosing modules you’re most interested in, to designing your own path in your final year project.
